The Swans Trust is always looking at new ways in which to raise funds. The funds are used to:
* Purchase Additional Shares in the Club
* Invest in ‘football in the community’ initiatives
* Invest in youth football in Swansea
and other valuable initiatives. With this in mind, we need each of our members to help contribute with both funds and ideas. Take a look at some of the interesting fund raising ideas below which the trust supports fully!
Easy Fundraising – Earn Money for the Trust whilst you shop Online
Easy Fundraising is a shopping directory listing some of your favourite online stores including Amazon, NEXT, Debenhams, John Lewis, Toys R Us, HMV and over 500 other top name stores. Whenever you shop with any one of them using the links provided on the easyfundraising site, you’ll generate a free donation for us of up to 15% of the purchase price every time!
For example, spend £25 online with WHSmith on books and 2.5% will be donated directly to the Trust. You will have raised £0.63, at no extra cost to your purchase. Make any purchase from Amazon and 2.5% will be donated. Insure your car with Aviva and raise £30.00, or purchase a mobile phone from O2 and earn £17.50, and so on. Might seem small amounts but with 1,000s of Trust members making regular on line purchases the amounts will soon add up.
You can shop online with 2000+ brand name retailers, including travel companies, DIY stores and major High Street chains and to raise funds you just use the links from the Easy Fundraising website first – it’s that simple! There is a “How it Works” section on the Easyfundraising website with useful information if you need any help.
It doesn’t cost a penny more to shop and raise funds in this way. In fact you can even SAVE MONEY as many retailers give exclusive discounts, special offers and even ‘e-vouchers’ when you shop through the easyfundraising site.
All you need to do is register for free at http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/swanseacity and use the easyfundraising page to link to your favourite retailer every time you shop online and help us raise funds. Every penny you raise will help us continue our vital work.
Easy Search – Earn Money for the Trust just for searching online
You can also raise funds for us every time you search the Web – with easysearch, a search engine with a difference!
When you search with easysearch, you’ll raise around 1p for us with every search you make! Make just 10 searches a day and you could raise £25 a year – or more – for us, just by switching to easysearch.
What’s more, easysearch combines the strengths of several search engines together – Yahoo!, MSN Live Search, Ask.com and many more – making it a ‘super’ search engine! easysearch tracks down the most relevant and accurate results from across the Web, which means you’ll find what you are looking for quickly and easily every time – in one ‘easy’ search.
Please set our unique easysearch page – http://swanseacity.easysearch.org.uk – as your homepage and use it every time you search the Web.
